Multivitamin Health Alert

Date: September 12, 2017 | Time: 4:50am

diet-pills-1328804_1920.jpgThink all multivitamins are created equal? If so, read on. Not only could you be throwing away money by not receiving what is listed on the label, you could be consuming something that is potentially toxic to your body. Results from ConsumerLab.com indicates more than half of 21 multivitamins they tested had too little or too much of certain ingredients listed on the label and many had unacceptably high levels of the toxic heavy metal lead. ConsumerLab.com conducts independent tests to help consumers and healthcare professionals evaluate health, wellness and nutrition products. According to their results, out of the 21 products tested, only 10 had accurate amounts of stated ingredients as well as other quality standards. Some of their other findings included - one women's multivitamin contained more than 10 times the lead allowed without a label stating so (against current California law), one children's vitamin contained more than double the vitamin A (potentially toxic to children under the age of 9) and some products weren't likely to break up in one's digestive tract and instead, simply pass completely through without sufficient absorption. So when purchasing vitamins, it's a good idea to purchase a quality product from a reputable company to ensure you're not only getting the health benefits you paid for, but also, so you're not consuming a product that is potentially toxic.

Healthy Meals - Tips for Making Them Affordable

Date: September 7, 2017 | Time: 10:25am

Eating good, healthy meals doesn't have to be the expensive, time-consuming ordeal many people think it is. In fact, eating healthy can often times be just as cost effective and efficient as eating packaged or semi-prepared meals IF you follow a few simple steps.

  1. Healthy mealsBuy In Bulk - when shopping for your food, anytime you can purchase larger quantities you'll save money.
  2. Don't Forget The Freezer - make extra and freeze it for a later date. This is a GREAT way to not only save money, but time as well!
  3. Embrace the Season - not only does eating food that is in season, choosing locally grown food usually means better taste and quite often a cheaper price.
  4. Eat It All - don't let anything go to waste! For example, if you have a whole chicken one night, make chicken stock that can be used as a later date.

Remember, eating healthy doesn't have to be a burden, financially or otherwise. Just be wise with how you buy and prepare your food and you'll enjoy healthier, more flavorful and many times, more efficient meals.

Exercise Assists In Preventing Fat Storage

Date: August 31, 2017 | Time: 3:48am

belly-2354_1920.jpgA new study has found that regular exercise appears to protect the body from depositing fat when a person increases their short-term fat consumption. In the study, researchers took a group of ten sedentary women and had them exercise at three different levels while altering their diet consisting of 30 percent calories from fat to 50 percent calories from fat. They found the more the women exercised, the faster they were able to burn the fat calories. In other words, for those who exercise, occasional indulgences in high fatty meals appear to be well tolerated. For those not exercising, even occasional fatty indulgences can result in an almost immediate storage to fat.

You're Never Too Old or Too Overweight To Exercise

Date: August 15, 2017 | Time: 6:47am

fitness-1916724_1920Many studies have been conducted on young and middle aged adults showing the substantial benefits of dietary modifications and exercise addition to one's lifestyle. Unfortunately, far fewer studies exist for the elderly. Now, results from a new study indicate these benefits are also significant in the elderly. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 27 sedentary obese men and women aged 65 were randomly assigned to a diet and exercise program. Those elderly subjects who were assigned to the diet and exercise program significantly lowered their bodyweight, blood pressure, blood sugar and bad blood triglycerides. More specifically, those elderly who were assigned to the diet and exercise program lost an average of 18 pounds and experienced an 59 percent decrease in metabolic syndrome (a collection of conditions that increase an individual's risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease) as compared to the control group who did not participate in the diet and exercise program.

Cloudy Apple Juice Better, An Apple The Best

Date: August 2, 2017 | Time: 5:46am

juice-1584209_1920Most of us know the importance of antioxidants - those little superheroes that help our bodies neutralize free radicals that otherwise reap havoc on our bodies. A new Polish study reveals that for those who consume apple juice, the cloudier the apple juice the greater the concentration of antioxidants present. In fact, researchers found the cloudy juice contained up to four times the level of antioxidants. So what's the reason most apple juice sold is clear? Clear juice is more appealing to consumers and has a longer shelf life. It should be noted that as good as the cloudy apple juice is as compared to the clear, no apple juice beats the nutrients and antioxidants consumed by eating a fresh apple with the skin.

Active Seniors Lower Back Pain Occurrence

Date: July 20, 2017 | Time: 4:45am

yoga-1434787_1920In a recent study of 1,387 seniors aged 70 to 100 years, seniors who exercised more frequently and more strenuously had a lower incidence of lower back pain (LBP). Participation in strenuous physical activity was not only associated with a lower incident of LBP, but also associated with a lower risk of having previously suffered from LBP lasting for more than 30-days. Researchers concluded, "Strenuous physical activity at least once a week is protective for incident LBP in seniors." All individuals, especially seniors, should visit their primary health care provider prior to initiating any exercise regimen or elevated physical activity.

Soap And Water For Clean Hands

Date: July 3, 2017 | Time: 8:44pm

pool-778207_1920According to researchers, washing hands with regular soap and water is just as effective as using anti-bacterial soaps and sanitizers, if hand washing is performed correctly. Studies show that washing hands thoroughly for 15 seconds removes 90 percent of bacteria. However, most people do not wash their hands often enough, thorough enough or dry their hands thoroughly. Gel sanitizers are good in that a few squirts can thoroughly cover the entire hands and it does not require water. Thus, while all the new fancy products to keep our hands clean have their benefits, when used properly, good old soap and water does the trick very nicely.

Eat Slow To Eat Less

Date: June 20, 2017 | Time: 7:42pm

lobster-1615616_1920.jpgThe theory of 'eat slow and you won't eat as much' has now been proven in a new study conducted by University of Rhode Island researchers. Generally speaking, researchers found women who were instructed to eat slower ended up consuming significantly fewer calories. Additionally, immediately and within an hour of consuming their meals, women who ate slowly felt fuller and reported feeling more satisfied. Researchers stated that individuals could expect to consume around 200 calories less per day simply by eating slower.
